Project Management for Non-Project Managers
IN THIS SUMMARY
According to a 2009 study by the Standish Group, only 32 percent of all projects launched by American businesses succeed, while 44 percent are “challenged,” meaning they run over budget or deliver products or services that are inferior to the original concept, and 24 percent of new projects flat out fail. Standish estimated that failed and challenged projects cost American businesses billions of dollars a year. In his book, Project Management for Non-Project Managers, management consultant Jack Ferraro helps managers plan and execute the projects that often determine the success or failure of their organizations.
